    I was about to get excited and say if you want to meet up for a ride when you get down here let me know, then I sadly remembered that my bike is out of commission

    That bike has seen a lot more miles than the any of the NA mascots. I found this speedo in the garage the other night. I think it came off that bike in the winter of 88.

    We looked at the photos and felt pretty confident that if we just dug down another couple of feet we would find it. (So I came up with a lame excuse about work and sent my little brother to do the digging) and look WE found it.:wink:

    Awesome! I feel so much better knowing Drago is safe again. Great job to both of you for visiting my beach. That place is very special to me and I'm glad I was able to share it with you both.

    Was a beautiful place for a drop. Sorry I didn't do a better job of excavating! That beach must have been wonderful, early in the morning for surfing on the glassed out little waves of the East Coast. I have similar memories from the Azore beach in Long Beach, Long Island, NY.

    Call it a hunch, but I'm pretty sure Haystack is at Rockingham Speedway in NC right now enjoying Smokeout. Wish I was there too!

    I suspect he'll be dropping it soon.

    I had to do a little digging. It seams like the construction crew dumped 2 layers of concrete rubble after the set was made.:cry

    It was late in the day, but we headed out! South and west. Thru the Pine Barren:D, across the Delaware, and then down below the Mason/Dixon line:freaky

    The first nights accommodations were nice.

    We crossed Virginia on some nice 2 lanes and rode a piece of the Blue Ridge Parkway right into North Cackalackey. The weather was good, so I was running up and down all sorts of nice roads. My bike was making a little raspy noise that I never heard before, but I couldn't pin point it and she was running strong so I pressed on to Maggie Valley. I arrived at Wheels Thru Time http://www.wheelsthroughtime.com/ after they were closed, but I didn't let a locked gate stop me. I got to spend a little time with the owner, Dale, who now has his own TV show http://www.velocity.com/tv-shows/whats-in-the-barn. He let me camp, down by the river........

    Well, you get the idea. It's a very cool place with a gracious owner and host. If you like motorcycles you should visit!:deal

    But the dragon was ready to go! Further into the Mountains.

    The weather was mixed, but it was a warm rain heading up.

    Drago seemed to like the mountains.

    We slipped into Tennessee

    Passed a few former tags on the way to Deals Gap
